ANTY 484 - Economic Anthropology

4 Credit(s)
This course begins with the analysis of the economic relationships found among non-market economies including band, village, and peasant
societies. Next, students will study historically the incorporation into the world market economy (capitalism) of all people on the planet. The study
of existing people today is a study of the combination of two or more economic systems, both continuations of non-capitalist economies together
with a larger capitalist system. The course then examines the economic relationships to all other social institutions. The course will explore
the debates between the formal economic theory with competing Marxist and the substantivist economics as to the nature of economic history
and the impact of globalization on everyday life. Students will exhibit an empirical understanding of content through written critiques and directed
examinations. The course routine and makeup will include lectures, class discussions, small group activities, extensive reading, research, and
written assignments.
